I Cannot get a PCMCIA 802.11b cards to work in my Jornada 820 - running Windows CE. Does anyone 'know' the trick, or a list of cards they got working ?
In the past I couldn't get the Compaq LTE5280/5300's to work, until I 'discovered' that they need a 16bit card !!! Is it anything like that ?

Re: Jornada 820 - WiFi cards HELP
Can you try inserting the card and resetting the unit with the reset button. When the unit is back up got to start>programs>communications>remote networking then make a new connection. Choose dial up connection and select your card.

Well your going to have to check whether your device has inbuilt wireless capability (refer to manual). If it doesnt there are various expansion slot solutions like SD and Compact flash wireless cards.
The only advice that I could offer is to try those 2 Compact Flash cards on someone elses PocketPC. If they don't work then there must be something wrong with the cards.
However, if they both work then there must be a problem with the CF slot on your Jornada. Try to test out some CF cards from an electronic store if they will let you.
Yes, you do not need drivers for CF cards. A preferred CF list? Whomever told you this is blowing you off.
People use all brands of CF cards from Viking, Scandisk, Lexar, Mr. Flash, etc. Sometimes there is a bad card and other times the CF slot is bad so check both of those out...
To list your CE version, you can go to the Today screen and select the Start button to pull down the menu.
Select Settings (not HP settings). From the Settings screen, select the System tab at the bottom. At the top of this page, select About. This will list your CE version.
Mine is Version 3.0.9348 (Build 9616). It also will list the Processor (SH3) and Memory (15.87 MB).
I use an Omnibook 500 with a Jornada 545 as you describe without problems. The most likely cause is the difference in processors. The first version of Pocket PC was supported on three different CPU architectures. The Jornada 545 uses an SH3 processor. Applications designed for the 565 will not run on the 545. You will need to find applications designed for the SH3 processor.
